There is hardly a home or business that does not hve some kind of a network in place or wants one or has one that needs some tuning, repair or other service. But the problem is that in this day an age there are too many network "experts" and "gurus" that have mystified the whole process and for any network service at all, you have to hire an expert and have to pay for an evaluation, estimation, diagnostics and a whole lot of other formalites before you can get anything done at all!

At CITS we make everything very simple and straight forward for you. Simply call me directly and I will fly out there and do whatever you need done at your site. All you will be paying is the cost of travel, the air fare, hotel and my per diem and then a simple labor rate of $193.20 per hour, that's it. And of course the cost of materials. Who does that nowadays? Please ask aound and find out. Obviusly I am not looking to get rich here at this point. Just to keep busy and do YOU some good! That's all. Please don't fall for that high sounding network lingo and trust my experience. I solve problems just standing there!!

Remember, the good Microsoft and other great vendors may have invented and put the network systems in place in the first place and the network gururs are great people but they will make you go thrugh a very formal and stiff process. Whereas I will get it working informally and completely before they will figure out what to do even! And I will figure out and setup the network design without even using a piece of paper and pen! Well, may be a pen and a notebook. But I will give you a write up after all is setup. Don't worry there will be some documentation!

My number is (651)442-9044 and is almost alway ON. I am looking for a PROBLEM to fix!

And I forgot to say, I work on networks Small or Lage, at home or abroad. Nothing is too small or too big. I have not said "NO" in my life yet!

Thank you.

System                   XL5000 


Duration                5.0 Full Days


Class Audience    Fire and Security Systems Designers/Engineers and Service/Installation Personnel for Fire Alarm Systems


Offered At             Customer site or St Paul


# of Students        Minimum 5, Maximum 8


Pre-requisites      CITS1004 or CITS5003


Cost                        $1990 per person at customer site, $1290 per person St Paul


Brief                      The Class starts with an exhaustive discussion of the system block diagram of the XLS System and its front end application program, namely the XBS System.


                                The class then presents a very effective installation sequence for the system under consideration. This requires a discussion of available enclosures and  field and panel wiring.  This leads to working with chassis components installation and internal channel and data wiring.  This is followed by local rail module installation and wiring required therefore. This leads to system power up and testing.  This completes the first part of the class namely hardware/installation and wiring. 


                                Remark: This part of the class may be de-emphasized depending upon student knowledge of earlier but similar systems or if the systems are already wired up and running.


Part 2 of the class is concerned with engineering of the XLS system and is quite abstract. Time is spent on the engineering language syntax and programming rules.  This is used to create an initial start-up version of an application program. This naturally leads to downloading and testing procedures.  This is followed by actual field wire connections and service/trouble shooting issues.  This is followed by a final application program download and elaborate testing for proper system operation.


The entire sequence above is supported by actual demonstrations on the part of the instructor and followed by student exercises which are reviewed by the instructor.  In addition each student group demonstrates their system/stations’ functionality. 


Finally the entire sequence is repeated by the students working independently on an new project assignment given by the instructor.  A completed fully functioning project is a very satisfying and confidence building experience.


The class also addresses installation and other operational issues of the latest and greatest software revisions.
